Early Childhood Development in Spain - Country Profile
Spain has invested in policy areas impacting early childhood development (ECD). In 2021, under the General State Budget, a budget line has been earmarked for early childhood education and care (ECEC). As part of its pre- government agreement, the current government coalition pledged to “protect public services, especially education” and promote nursery schools from birth to three-years-old throughout its term in office.
First Years First Priority is a Europe-wide campaign set up to advocate for prioritization of early childhood development in public policies, with a particular focus on families and children who are at greater risk of discrimination and exclusion.
